  • Middleware offers function that user application program can transmit data independently of network device. Connection management about network connection of module is important for normal service of module base personal robot. Unpredictable network disconnection is influenced to whole robot performance in module base personal robot. For this, Middleware must be offer two important function. The first is function of error detection and reporting about abnormal network disconnection. Therefore, middleware need method for network error detection and module management to consider special quality that each network device has. The second is the function recovering that makes the regular service possible. When the module closed from connection reconnects, as this service reports connection state of the corresponding module, the personal robot resumes the existing service. In this paper proposed method of network connection management for to support fault tolerant about network error of network module based personal robot.

  • Objective: This study aims to apply the concept of aging metaphor to personal service robots to deliver new experiences to users. Background: Personal service robots such as Softbank's Pepper and MIT Media Lab's Jibo have begun entering our lives. These service robots have the important function of interacting with human beings. Method: The robot aging metaphor is to transform the shape, color, motion, voice, and texture, which are visual, auditory, and tactile components, by applying the concept of aging to the robot interface. The robot applied with the concept of aging metaphor forms a close relationship with human beings and provides emotional value to them. We summarize herein the concept of robot aging metaphor and propose an application method using the system and feature of the natural aging process in the real world through the prototype. Results: Robot aging metaphor structure and applied researches of robot aging metaphor are suggested in designing robot interfaces. Conclusion: The results of the design framework of robot aging metaphor will help users to experience emotional value interacting with robots. The framework which is suggested should be applied to social robots in appropriate contexts. Application: Types of aging process which provides optimizing user experience for users should be validated through an experiment.

  • Social robots are attracting attention as an alternative to social problems in modern society, and the need for modularization has been raised to efficiently manage various robots. The study aims to reestablish the concept of 'Personal social service robot' and propose a new modularization method to apply it. For this study, literature research about the definition of social robots and service robots is conducted. In addition, we investigated the modularization of robots and analyzed the modularization cases of service robots. Based on this, we have deducted considerations for applying social service robot modularization and proposed a new modularization. This study divided the module into active module and passive module according to whether it is electric or electronic component of the module, and the active module was again classified into basic module and additional module according to the basic and replacement type of the robot. The modularization was verified by making the prototype of the actual robot.

  • For the personal robot to serve humans as a companion in our daily life, it is obviously important that the robot should have a long-term relationship to users. In this paper, we introduce a simple idea on how to make the long-term relationship by using just low-cost and simple robots. We also describe the robotic artificial creature system to implement this idea. The artificial creature robots respond not only physical environment changes but also the logical information changes in the virtual world such as the Web. They consist of a control robot and several simple robots, which show users various group behaviors. Users have a relationship with them by observing these behaviors, rather than interacting with them. We separate physical robots and software applications in order that artificial creature robots can have more various behaviors made by various software applications. Finally, we implemented the system using a robot simulator to show some example cases.

  • This paper describe the riding robot system named by "RideBot" which is a riding robot like as a horse. In order to simulate the riding motions, we develope the saddle mechanism which can generate 3 DOF motions including pitch, roll, and bounce movement, and also we controlled the riding motions and the intention of horseman. To generate the riding motions with the bodily sensation, we developed Novel Washout Filter and the algorithms for motion control. And also, we developed some health care service for the health care of horseman. A body state index was proposed that evaluates the personal health state from both the measured physiological variables and the surveyed questions. The physiological variables such as weight, blood pressure, heart rate variability (HRV), accelerated state photoplethysmograph(APG), body fat, and happiness index were measured by the specially designed bio-handle system and survey questions. The efficiency of the proposed ride robot is evaluated in the experiments.

  • Korea Communications Commission (KCC) has been providing the pilot service of URC(Ubiquitous Robot Companion), which is a network-based personal robot, to 1000 Korean households since 2006 to define potential users' needs and adoption behaviors. Personal innovativeness might play a critical role in adoption of URC services by users because much sophisticated and convergence technologies are incorporated into URC services. Also, defining not only perceived beliefs about URC services but also expected beliefs about them are very crucial to reduce disconfirmation between users' perception and expectation of URC services. From this point of view, this paper aimed to examine robot users' adoption behavior by considering constructs such as personal innovativeness, usefulness (perceived usefulness - expected usefulness, P-E), user attitude, and intention to use. The findings reveal that personal innovativeness is negatively related to usefulness (P-E) whereas usefulness (P-E) influences significantly and positively on user attitude. It is also shown that usefulness (P-E) and user attitude have strong positive effects on intention to use.

  • An increasing number of researches and developments for personal or professional service robots are attracting a lot of attention and interest industrially and academically during the past decade. Furthermore, the development of intelligent robots is intensively fostered as strategic industry. Until now, most of practical and commercial service robots are worked by remotely operated controller. The most important technical issue of remote control is a wireless communication, especially in the indoor and unstructured environments where communication infrastructures might be destroyed by various disasters. Therefore we propose a multi-robot following navigation method for securing the valid communication distance extension of the remote control based on WPAN(Wireless Personal Area Networks). The concept and implementation of following navigation are introduced and the performance verification is performed through real navigation experiments in real or test-bed environments.
